Kentucky is likely expecting a large 2020 class, and that class could include four-star wing Cam’Ron Fletcher.
Fletcher, who hails from St. Louis, recently cut his list to 5 with Kentucky included and scheduled a visit for Aug. 1. Recruiting experts, most notably Evan Daniels, really like Kentucky’s chances of landing Fletcher.
Daniels and several others have logged picks in favor of the Wildcats for the athletic 6’6” wing.
If Fletcher were to jump on board sooner rather than later, he could be Kentucky’s first commitment in the class, and part of a group of perimeter players Kentucky hopes to bring in. The Cats are heavily involved with the likes of Jalen Green, BJ Boston, Josh Christopher, etc.
But with his length and size, there is no doubt Fletcher could serve a role for the Wildcats. Brian Snow at 247 Sports really summed up his game well.
“At 6-foot-6 with great length, his versatility and natural ability are through the roof. Right now, he is more of a threat from 15-feet and in, but his outside shot has improved, and it is beginning to become a regular part of his game. It is the toughness, athleticism, and ability to attack with the dribble that makes Fletcher such a productive player. He doesn’t have the best feel for the game, but the physical tools and desire allow him to overcome that, and be a talented forward who can excel in a number of different roles.”
Fletcher’s recruitment is something to watch moving forward, especially when he visits on Aug. 1.
In the meantime, here are some highlights of him in action.
